  • If the carafe sustains a heavy impact, it may be damaged. Check for cracks or damage before using, especially if there are signs of leakage.
  • Never lay the carafe on its side when it is full, even if the lid is firmly attached.
  • Children should be supervised to ensure they do not play with the appliance.
  • Never remove the stainless steel carafe or filter basket during the brewing cycle.

Power Cords

  • A short power-supply cord is provided to reduce the risks resulting from becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.
  • Longer detachable power-supply cords or extension cords may be used if care is exercised in their use.
  • If a long detachable power-supply cord or extension cord is used:
    • The marked electrical rating of the detachable power supply cord or extension cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the appliance
    • If the appliance is of the grounded type, the extension cord should be a grounding-type 3-wire cord; and
    • The longer cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the countertop or tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over.


  • This Bonavita coffee brewer is engineered to heat the brewing water to within the 195°- 205°F (91°-96°C ) range. The heating elements in the Bonavita coffee brewers are designed to deliver the correct temperature water over the correct brewing time.
  • For ideal extraction levels, brew your coffee in 6-8 cup batches, with fresh, filtered, cold water.
  • Brewing time is about 6 minutes for 8 cups of coffee. This will allow for proper water flow and saturation time.
  • The quality of the coffee has a great impact on brewed coffee’s flavor. Using freshly roasted beans and grinding the beans just before brewing are important considerations. We recommend using coffee within a couple of weeks of its roast date. Air-tight storage will help extend your coffee’s lifespan.
  • Grinding coffee is another key point on the timeline of flavor and perishability. Once coffee is ground the air begins to attack essential oils and other volatile flavor components. It’s only a matter of hours before most of the ground coffee’s aroma has evaporated. Sometimes pregrinding can’t be avoided, but if it can, delay until shortly before brewing.
  • For the most consistent results, Bonavita recommends measuring coffee by weight, using 10 grams of coffee per cup.
  • Measuring coffee by volume is less consistent. For example, two tablespoons of drip grind coffee can weigh between 6 grams of dark roast coffee to 11 grams of light roast coffee. Bonavita recommends beginning with two level tablespoons of drip grind coffee as a starting point with your preferred roast and adjusting according to your taste.
  • Keep the filter basket, water tank, and carafe clean.
  • For maximum heat retention, we recommend rinsing the carafe with hot water shortly before the brew begins.

Cleaning the Coffee Brewer
Use a soft, damp cloth and a mild dish-cleaning liquid for cleaning the housing. We recommend using a clean measuring cup or pitcher to fill the tank when brewing. Following this recommendation, your brewer may only require periodic descaling. If you use your coffee carafe to fill your water tank, you may introduce coffee residue into the water tank, which may lead to coffee oil buildup. If filling with your carafe, we recommend cleaning with Full Circle coffee machine cleaning powder once a month.

Cleaning the Stainless Steel Thermal Carafe
The carafe will last for many years if handled properly. If coffee is left in the carafe for too long, the stainless lining will become discolored. For cleaning, we recommend using Full Circle coffee machine cleaning powder. Do not use scrubbing pads or hard-bristled brushes, which will damage the stainless lining.

In hard-water areas, scaling from limestone content in the water may build up in your brewer. Scaling can lead to extended preparation time and possible damage to your Bonavita coffee brewer. We recommend that you describe your brewer after every 100 brew cycles, or once every three months. However, if the brewer makes an unusually loud noise, extends brew time, or fails to achieve the recommended water temperature of 195°-205°F (91°-96°C), you may need to descale more often.

We recommend using Full Circle descaling powder, which is designed to break down mineral build-up inside your brewer to ensure great coffee and consistent functionality. Do not use vinegar, which may not effectively descale your brewer, and may leave behind an odor that can impact the flavor of your coffee.
